I worked at Washington DC Government full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Gives you great hands-on legal experience. You have the ability to interact closely with Judges. Being a clerk really hones your legal research and writing skills. A position here is well-regarded amongst DC employers

Cons

The Courthouse is overburdened, understaffed and underfunded. They are attempting to cut down their budget wherever they can, while the building is teeming with hundreds of people, and this creates a chaotic environment.
